Time Out says

Here Wiseman's normally astute and intelligent handling of documentary material for once falters. Meat never attempts to match Franju's descent to the slaughterhouse in Le Sang des Bêtes, it is true; but whatever one might expect from the director of Hospital and Primate, it surely would not be the bland and unenquiring advertisement for the US meat industry that emerges. The film does offer one eerie spectacle, however, as what Wiseman calls 'the Judas Goat' leads the other beasts to the slaughter before swiftly sidestepping the death chamber itself.
